Ain't no Party Like a Puma Party

You're a lithe, athletic type, so the logo on your athletic gear should match! That's why no one buys that "Hippopotamus" line of training gear.

Turns out newfiepage has a strange factoid for us today:

I had no idea. You?

I'm just hanging out, really.

It's so contentious that the two companies – who are geographically close – have very sternly formed non-compete agreements. Only recently did they hold an inter-company soccer match. That was the first olive branch, so to speak, in 60 years. And that was for charity.

The brown backpack looks like it could be part of a suit.

Any word on the 'Lightweight Performance Backpack?' There are very few (and very mixed) reviews on the internet.
